When Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem the Arab heard of our plan, they scoffed contemptuously. “What are you doing? Are you rebelling against the king?” they asked”. (Nehemiah 2:19 NLT)

Beloved, over the past few days we have been led to pray against the intimidation of mockers because one of the tactics the enemy uses against us is MOCKERY. In our feature, Nehemiah tried to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem but received strong opposition from the enemy; opposition that included MOCKERY.

Nehemiah said… they scoffed contemptuously… To scoff someone means to mock or ridicule them. The Message translation says… they laughed at us, mocking, “Ha! What do you think you’re doing?”

Sanballat and his crew heard about the great work Nehemiah and his crew planned to do and began to laugh and mock them. The plan was to magnify the obstacles and make them feel little about themselves so that they become discouraged. “What do you think you’re doing? You are never going to make it. You will soon give up”.

Sanballat also mocked them of being too weak to finish the job. Nehemiah said… Sanballat was very angry when he learned that we were rebuilding the wall. He flew into a rage and mocked the Jews, saying in front of his friends and the Samarian army officers, “What does this bunch of poor, feeble Jews think they’re doing? Do they think they can build the wall in a single day by just offering a few sacrifices? Do they actually think they can make something of stones from a rubbish heap—and charred ones at that?” (Nehemiah 4:1-2 NLT)

Beloved, do you know anyone who just tries to ridicule you in front of others? They not just belittle you, they also belittle what you’re trying to achieve. But what do you think they’re trying to do? They want to demoralise you and make you question your abilities. “YOU’RE JUST TOO WEAK! YOU’RE NOT STRONG ENOUGH! YOU CAN NEVER ACHIEVE ANYTHING LIKE THIS?” They try to make you feel like you are bound to fail even from the very beginning and if you let them get to you, you’re already destined to fail. Then they would have won.

But why the anger? Why the mocking? Sanballat actually means ‘secret hatred’. So, don’t be surprised to find out that some people secretly hate you. You’re bound to discover this as soon as you step out to do anything good. Sanballat believed that if he could get into their minds by mocking them, he could stop them and that’s what satan does to paralyse you. His trick is to work on your mind to make you feel you’re not good enough. Many people won’t make a move because of fear that they might be mocked if they failed? They back down because no one likes to be mocked. However, Nehemiah didn’t back down. He took it to God in prayer, renewed his mind and continued to rebuild the wall (Nehemiah 4:4-6).

Beloved, are you going to allow mockery mess with your mind?

30. June 2017 · Comments Off on LAYING ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT‏ · Categories: Action, Choices, Discipline, Jesus Christ, Self Control, Spiritual Growth

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1 KJV).

Beloved, yesterday, I wrote about laying aside that besetting sin that so easily beset us but our feature text doesn’t just talk about the sin which so easily beset us, it also advises us to lay aside every weight that slows us down from running the race set before us and this is one that affects a lot of us.

I like that the text says, ‘every weight’. The Amplified Bible Translation says… stripping off every unnecessary weight… The Message translation says… No extra spiritual fat… and I would like for you to think about all the junk that you consume that causes you to put on extra pounds and then try and relate that to your spiritual life.

Beloved, this is a call for us to get rid of those things in our lives that do not contribute to our purpose here on earth. This is a call for us to do a simple evaluation of everything we are involved with by asking ourselves this honest question; what contribution is this thing making to my life? ‘This thing’ includes your relationships, your conversations, your daily activities… everything…

I did this evaluation a while ago and I tell you… my TV went off, my contact list reduced to less than half, I reduced the number of places I went to and you would be surprised how much free time you have to do the things that are really important and are in line with the race that you are running.

Beloved, King David said… Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; Nor do I involve myself in great matters, Or in things too difficult for me (Psalm 131:1 AMP). The Message translation says… I haven’t meddled where I have no business…

The Apostle Paul also said… No soldier in active service gets entangled in the [ordinary business] affairs of civilian life; [he avoids them] so that he may please the one who enlisted him to serve (2 Timothy 2:4 AMP). In order words, stay out of people’s business and focus on what you’ve been called to do.

Like I said, I dropped a number of things and have been amazed at the number of important things I could do but even now, as I’m writing this, I’m away at a retreat somewhere in a little Spanish village because the Lord wanted me to spend some alone time assessing and re-evaluating where I am now; to drop every weight so I can hear His still small voice giving direction for what is set before me.

So, beloved, the question for you is, “do you need to get rid of any weight?”

15. June 2017 · Comments Off on WHAT IS ANGER ROBBING YOU OF? · Categories: Anger, Change, Fruit of the Spirit, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Self Control, Sin, Spiritual Growth

And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil (Ephesians 4:26 NLT).

Beloved, I remember watching a drama about a so-called Spirit-filled Christian woman who had a major issue with anger. She was a nightmare wife to live with and her husband could not control her. She fought with her neighbours and even took great offence when her pastor preached on anger. She was so mad that she walked out of the church and of course continued the fighting with her poor husband at home. How can pastor be preaching about me and you couldn’t even defend me?

The funny thing is that the pastor didn’t even call her name. He was just letting the congregation know that the next seven days were to be dedicated to prayers because God was going to work in a miraculous way. As a result, he didn’t want people to allow things like anger, quarrelling and the like hinder their blessings. But this woman was offended by it.

Anyway, on the final day of the programme, they all gathered in church and as the pastor was praying, the move of the Holy Spirit was so strong that one lady was so taken away. She mistakenly hit this woman with a temper and trouble started in church. This woman was almost fighting in church. Her embarrassed husband‎ had to intervene. Meanwhile, there happened to be an angel on assignment distributing blessings. He was just placing stickers of blessings on people in the congregation. Everybody got one but this lady who unfortunately had been looking for the fruit of the womb and this is because she was busy fighting everybody. Even her husband got a promotion sticker.

In due season, another lady that was looking for the fruit of the womb‎ got pregnant and this woman was left wondering why she was the only one left out. Then she heard the voice of the Lord rebuking her because of her anger.

The morale of the story is that at times we are the ones that hinder our blessings because of our attitude.

Beloved, the Bible introduces us to Hannah who was a woman that was provoked by her rival, Peninah till the point that she had to desperately cry out to the Lord until her pastor said… GO IN PEACE, and may the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him (1 Samuel 1:17 AMP)

GO IN PEACE… If we take that word literally, it means to be at peace in your mind and also with everybody else including the Peninah’s in your life who would probably try to still make life a living hell for you. Off course, let’s not ignore the fact that you should avoid quarrelling with your spouse whom you need to partner with to make things happen. It is called creating an atmosphere for miracles.

‎Beloved, the Lord is still in the business of blessing people. Don’t hinder yourself. Why not ask the Holy Spirit to reveal and help you deal with anything that may be causing a hindrance to your breakthrough?

24. March 2017 · Comments Off on ARE YOU READY FOR THE DISRUPTION? · Categories: Action, Change, Choices, God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Self Control, Sin, Spiritual Growth

When Simon Peter realized what had happened, he fell to his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m too much of a sinner to be around you.” For he was awestruck by the number of fish they had caught, as were the others with h‎im (Luke 5:8-9 NLT)

Beloved, have you ever been where Peter was before? “I know that feeling” was what I said to myself as I read our feature text. This is the point in your life where Jesus shows up and you know exactly what He is asking for and for many, it’s at the time when you are not quite ready for the disruption. At this point, Peter probably knew it was make or break for him. He probably knew that he had to make ‎some major changes in his life where he must have thought; “I can’t be going to those places and hanging out with those people anymore. Yes, I know I am going to have to cut some people and some habits off which I am not quite sure I am ready for.

Also, like most people, he probably felt he wasn’t worth it. He felt unworthy. Looking to himself, he must have said, “knowing me, I am bound to mess this up big time”. He was afraid of this massive change and so he said… Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m too much of a sinner to be around you.” However, what did Jesus say to him? …Jesus replied to Simon, “Don’t be afraid! From now on you’ll be fishing for people!” And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus (Luke 5:10-11 NLT).

Beloved, are you prepared for such a disruption in your life? Or, do you keep saying “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m too much of a sinner to be around you”?

Yesterday, the message was “Don’t be afraid to try again” and though trying again may disrupt your whole world but I am a living witness that it pays. You cannot put a price tag on the life and character transformation. I am not there yet but I am reminded of what Apostle Paul said… dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us (Philippians 3:13-14 NLT).

Beloved, so are you prepared to leave everything that is detrimental to your Christain work and walk and follow Jesus for real?

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us (Hebrews 12:1 AMP)

[The Man] asked him, What is your name? And [in shock of realization, whispering] he said, Jacob [supplanter, schemer, trickster, swindler]! And He said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob [supplanter], but Israel [contender with God]; for you have contended and have power with God and with men and have prevailed (Genesis 32:27-28 AMPC).

Beloved, we know the story of Jacob who spent a considerate amount of years running away from his brother because he stole his birth right and blessings. However, after having a taste of his own medicine from Laban… Then the Lord said to Jacob, “Return to the land of your father and grandfather and to your relatives there, and I will be with you.” (Genesis 31:3 NLT)

Beloved, the Lord’s instruction meant that Jacob had to go back and face his brother but not without wrestling it out with God first; a battle that resulted in a change of name and character. He was no longer Jacob, the supplanter, schemer, trickster, swindler. He was now Israel.

So, what happened next? We are told that Jacob went ahead to face his brother and… he bowed to the ground seven times as he approached his brother. But Esau ran to meet him. He embraced Jacob, kissed his neck, and they both cried (Genesis 33:3-4 Voice). So, why was it easy for Esau to receive his brother after everything that took place between them?

I remember someone saying it’s because Esau met with Israel and not Jacob. It was Jacob he had an issue with but Jacob was no more. He was dead.

Beloved, what am I trying to say? The word of God says… When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him (Proverbs 16:7 AMP). The Voice translation says… When people make good choices, He is pleased; He even causes their enemies to live peacefully near them. The Message translation says… When God approves of your life, even your enemies will end up shaking your hand.

One thing I always tell the people I mentor or anyone I’m giving counsel to is that they shouldn’t focus on the people that have issues with them. Rather, your focus should be on working on improving yourself and pleasing the Lord. Yes, people may have a valid reason for pointing the finger at you or they may not, however, there’s nothing like ceasing every opportunity to grow. That’s what the Christian journey is about… And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18 AMP).

Like the Apostle of my church would say #pre-me-glow… Same thing as saying “watch me glow or transform before your very eyes”

Beloved, today is the last day in November and we are about to enter December, the last month of 2016 and it’s another opportunity to reflect and examine your ways. In what areas has the Holy Spirit been dealing with you?

Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure that he has a steadfast mind and is standing firm], take heed lest he fall [into sin] (1 Corinthians 10:12 AMPC).

Beloved, have you realised that the closer your relationship is with Jesus, the more you realise that you desperately need His help to survive this world. Using Old Testament examples, 1 Corinthians 10 warns us of the things we shouldn’t do so that God would not be displeased with us. It starts by saying we should not lust after evil things as our forefathers also lusted. We should not become idolaters as they did. We shouldn’t commit sexual immorality as they did…

Some of us would be able to read some of these with a little bit of ease. We may say so far, we are not doing too badly but then it starts to get trickier. It starts to say we should not… tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted…; NOR COMPLAIN, AS SOME OF THEM ALSO COMPLAINED, AND WERE DESTROYED BY THE DESTROYER (1 Corinthians 10:10 NKJV).

NOR COMPLAIN!!!!!! At this point, if Jesus were to stand before us and say let he who is without sin cast the first stone, I’m sure all of us would drop our stones and would find ourselves before the throne of grace asking for help.

Beloved, with everything that is thrown at us on a daily basis, isn’t it hard not to complain? Don’t you wish some things were taken out of the Bible? But as we know… every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us (2 Timothy 3:16-17 MSG). We’ve been given reasons why God was not pleased with their forefathers and we are told… these things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age (1 Corinthians 10:11 NLT).

We shouldn’t lust after evil things… We shouldn’t become idolaters… and if you think of this and only see a golden image, then you are fine but when you start to think of all those things that you’ve placed first before God e.g. your favourite TV programme that you just have to watch, precious time spent on Facebook, your career, your own will… What are the things we worship? and then let’s just go back to that COMPLAIN bit again… We shouldn’t COMPLAIN…

Beloved, like our feature text says… Let anyone who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. The Message Translation says… Don’t be so NAIVE AND SELF-CONFIDENT. YOU’RE NOT EXEMPT. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it’s useless. CULTIVATE GOD-CONFIDENCE…

SELAH!

May our prayer continuously be “Lord help me…”

07. November 2016 · Comments Off on WHO DO YOU TELL YOUR PROBLEMS TO? · Categories: Action, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Self Control

The child grew. Now it happened one day that he went out to his father, to the reapers. And he said to his father, “My head, my head!” So he said to a servant, “CARRY HIM TO HIS MOTHER.” (2 Kings 4:18-19 NKJV)

CARRY HIM TO HIS MOTHER…

Beloved, the problem we sometimes have is that we tell our problems to the wrong people. Most times, everybody else gets to know what’s going on in our lives before God. We tend to talk to people about it first before we take it to God in prayer. But this was not the case with this very wise Shunammite woman our feature text is referring to.

I like her because she was a woman of few words but of plenty of action. Here’s a woman that God had blessed with a son after all hope was lost. She didn’t ask for the child. She was content with her old husband and family until the man of God came knocking to stir up her faith. She eventually had a child but then, the enemy thought that he could mess with her however, he knocked on the wrong door. You just know you are dealing with a woman of fire when her husband says… CARRY HIM TO HIS MOTHER…

Whatever the problem is, carry it to my wife because she knows exactly what to do. I know she won’t spend hours on the phone telling everybody she knows about our problems. And true to her nature, she immediately took action when her son died… she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, shut the door upon him, and went out. Then she called to her husband, and said, “Please send me one of the young men and one of the donkeys, that I may run to the man of God and come back.” (2 Kings 4:21-22 NKJV)

She did not even tell her husband what was up. She probably did not want to hear any word of discouragement. Where’s that man of God? I want to see him right now. I don’t even want to speak to Gehazi, your assistant. It’s you Elisha that I want to speak to. When she found Elisha, she said… “As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you.” (2 Kings 4:30 NKJV). And she did not take no for an answer until her dead son was back to life and then… she went in, fell at his feet, and bowed to the ground; then she picked up her son and went out (2 Kings 4:37 NKJV).

Beloved, experience has taught me that there are some people you don’t tell your issues to. If you do, if ever it had any hope of surviving, by the time it goes from one mouth to the other, you might as well consider the case closed. So, hopefully we can learn from the Shunammite woman. Be smart about who knows your business.

21. September 2016 · Comments Off on WHAT HAS CHANGED ABOUT YOU? · Categories: God's Plan, Jesus Christ, Self Control, Spiritual Growth, Suffering

Then He sent someone to Egypt ahead of them— Joseph, who was sold as a slave. They bruised his feet with fetters and placed his neck in an iron collar. Until the time came to fulfill his dreams, THE LORD TESTED JOSEPH’S CHARACTER (Psalm 105:17-19 NKJV).

WHAT HAS CHANGED ABOUT YOU?

Beloved, recently this was a question I was forced to ask a friend who I know to have been through a very difficult period of testing for a while now and I think it is one we all need to ask ourselves. She was telling of how the Lord has answered her prayer about somebody and so I asked what about you? Has the Lord answered the person’s prayers about you? Has anything changed about you?

Our feature text tells us that during his period of testing, the Lord tested Joseph’s character. We all know the story of Joseph. Joseph had a dream and as we all know; it took many years for that dream to come to pass. However, the most interesting part of Joseph’s story is that perhaps unknown to him, the Lord was testing his character.

The Amplified version says… Until the time that his word [of prophecy regarding his brothers] came true, the word of the Lord tested and refined him…

What does it mean to be refined? To be refined is the desired end result of something with the “impurities or unwanted elements having been removed by processing”.

Beloved, no doubt, Joseph was refined by testing but I wonder what part of Joseph’s character the Lord was testing? Could it be his ego, his pride or his running mouth, his integrity? Was the Lord teaching him priceless virtues like “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23 NLT)

Now, if you are to do an honest self-evaluation, are you able to talk about any impurities or unwanted elements that have been removed from your character. Have you been processed in anyway? WHAT HAS CHANGED ABOUT YOU? Your temper, pride, complaining, gossiping, laziness or self-centredness? Has anything changed at all? Has anyone looked at you and said “I can’t believe how much you have changed”. Have you received a compliment of that nature? Or is it “I can’t believe how little you have change.” Or perhaps yours is “you haven’t changed at all.”

Moses told the Israelites… Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey His commands (Deuteronomy 8:2 NLT).

Beloved… even though Jesus was God’s Son, He learned obedience from the things He suffered. In this way, God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and He became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him (Hebrews 5:8-9 NLT) and while Christian suffering is something that has brought about a whole lot of debate, one thing we know is that the Bible tells us that trouble and trials is an opportunity to grow and when you are… fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing (James 1:2-4 NLT).

22. August 2016 · Comments Off on ‏‏IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT YOU‏ · Categories: Action, Agreement, God's Plan, Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Relationship, Self Control, Wisdom

There’s a slogan often quoted on matters like this: “All things are permitted.” Yes, but not all things are beneficial. “ALL THINGS ARE PERMITTED,” THEY SAY. YES, BUT NOT ALL THINGS BUILD UP AND STRENGTHEN OTHERS IN THE BODY. WE SHOULD STOP LOOKING OUT FOR OUR OWN INTERESTS AND INSTEAD FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE LIVING AND BREATHING AROUND US (1 Corinthians 10:23-24 Voice) ‎.

Beloved, recently I was having a discussion with someone about some of the things we do that though there may not necessarily be anything wrong with it, but we have got to realise that people everywhere are watching and when they see you doing certain things, they are like “oh so I’m allowed to do that”. However, when they then try to do it, because they are either not strong in their faith or in their discipline, they fall.

In our feature text, Apostle Paul says… ALL THINGS ARE PERMITTED,” THEY SAY. YES, BUT NOT ALL THINGS BUILD UP AND STRENGTHEN OTHERS IN THE BODY. WE SHOULD STOP LOOKING OUT FOR OUR OWN INTERESTS AND INSTEAD FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE LIVING AND BREATHING AROUND US

Beloved, according to my Bible notes, “Paul’s instruction on this matter is clear: believers should give up their rights and freedoms for the sake of others. This is the essence of sacrifice. This is what Jesus did. This is what Paul does. Otherwise, community becomes impossible. But no state or church authority should force compliance; it must arise from A HEART OF LOVE AND A DISPOSITION THAT PUTS THE NEEDS OF OTHERS FIRST”. ‎

…A HEART OF LOVE AND A DISPOSITION THAT PUTS THE NEEDS OF OTHERS FIRST…

Here, Apostle Paul is talking about living selflessly with others. It should never be a case of Me… myself and I…

Beloved, when we use the phrase ‘die to self’, do we know what it entails? Are you one of those people that would use all your time and energy just to prove the point that what you are doing is right; that there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing? As you mature spiritually, you ought to know that there’s a lot more responsibility placed on you. Like Jesus said… everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more (Luke 12:48 AMP)

Apostle Paul went on to say…Consider my example: I strive to please all people in all my actions and words—but don’t think I am in this for myself—THEIR RESCUED SOULS ARE THE ONLY PROFIT (1 Corinthians 10:33 Voice)

…THEIR RESCUED SOULS ARE THE ONLY PROFIT…
Beloved, we are told that… he who is wise captures and wins souls [for God—he gathers them for eternity] (Proverbs 11:30 AMP).

He gathers them for eternity not scatters them. So, the question today is; how wise are you? Remember… NOT ALL THINGS BUILD UP AND STRENGTHEN OTHERS IN THE BODY.

‏Because we are in this particular role, it is especially important that we are people of fidelity and integrity. It makes little difference to me how you or any human court passes judgment on me. I even resist the temptation to compare myself to the ever-changing human standard. Although I am not aware of any flaw that might exclude me from this divine service, that’s not the reason I stand acquitted—the only supreme judge, our Lord, will examine me in the proper time (1 Corinthians 4:2-4 VOICE).

Beloved, a friend told me that this year, the Lord told her to have an audience of one where that one is God Himself. What this means is that the Lord was asking her to focus on Him; “Don’t focus on anyone. Don’t focus on yourself but just stay focus on Me”.

As I read our feature text, what she said came to mind. Here, Apostle Paul is saying… It makes little difference to me how you or any human court passes judgment on me…. probably because he knows people would always have something to say…

However, regardless of people’s impression about you, you should make the decision to be a person of integrity. Unfortunately, for many of us, when there are people around, there’s a tendency to act in a particular way just to give them a good impression about us but behind closed doors, we could be something else. However, there’s a word for that kind of behaviour which is simply ‘hypocrisy’ and while we can fool people, we cannot fool God. Like the Bible says… Make no mistake: God can’t be mocked. What you give is what you get. What you sow, you harvest (Galatians 6:7 Voice).

Paul goes on to say that… When the Lord comes, He will draw our buried motives, thoughts, and deeds (even things we don’t know or admit to ourselves) out of the dark shadows of our hearts into His light. When this happens, THE VOICE OF GOD WILL SPEAK TO EACH OF US THE ONLY PRAISE THAT WILL EVER MATTER (1 Corinthians 4:5 VOICE).

Beloved, this ought to stir something in you because most times we tend to present a front before people but I always like to say that the greatest revelation that we can ever receive is that nothing is hidden before God. We tend to say it but I wonder whether we truly believe it. What this tells me is that, we should be people of integrity in our thoughts and actions and this should be whether you are in a crowd of people or alone.

…THE VOICE OF GOD WILL SPEAK TO EACH OF US THE ONLY PRAISE THAT WILL EVER MATTER…

Beloved let this be our focus… Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs and examines the hearts [of people and their motives] (Proverbs 21:2 AMP).
